This morning, I opened up WordPress to see if I had any comments to reply to from yesterday’s post. And there were none. Then I noticed there weren’t any because I didn’t publish it.
I went in to publish it and it hadn’t been written.
So here is what I had intended to post yesterday.
How Much Is Too Much?
When do you know you have too many projects in progress? For me, it’s usually when there are more than two that are currently on the hook (for crochet).
I can juggle two projects without too much problem. One is usually a big project and the second is a smaller one that I can finish quicker and get that sense of “it’s done” satisfaction while I’m still working on the big one.
Right now, though? I’m not sure how many I have in progress.
- Serenity Shawl by TL Yarn Crafts.
- Peach Hana Triangle Shawl by BustingStitches.
- Monsters for Operation Monster Drop.
- A Study in Texture: Planet Earth by The Crochet Crowd.
- Headbands for my Etsy shop.
- Coasters for my Etsy shop.
I think that’s it. I’m not going to count the things I’m wanting to design that are in the thinking/planning process. Those aren’t on the hook yet, so they don’t count for this.
Ordinarily, I would say that this is too many projects. But… It doesn’t feel like it. It feels just right. I’m loving what I’m doing right now and I think that’s the key. When it starts to feel like it’s too much or overwhelming, that’s when there are too many things going and it’s time to pare back.
What about you? When do you know you have too many projects going? It doesn’t matter if it’s crochet, writing, painting, or something else entirely. Leave a comment and let’s chat.
It is like you read my mind!! I am so frustrated and overwhelmed now because lately, I have started a lot of projects, and obviously, I don’t have time for all.
Thank you. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with too many things going on. When I get to that point, I go with whichever project I’m most excited about or whichever one is ordered and waiting. lol
I have so many crochet projects going that I’ve actually lost count. I call it “crochet-d-d.” I just think of it has swatching. I have a LOT of swatches! http://cheryldeecrochet.com
I actually don’t swatch anymore, which is probably not a good thing. Thanks for including your link. I’ll check it out.
Being busy is my normal so being busier is okay too. I want to thank you for reaching out to my friend and I don’t know how far it will go with her. Last month she wanted to build a computer so…Anyway would love to read one of your recent books. Love.
